I have just uploaded 0.4.3 to

  ftp://ftp.guug.de/pub/gcrypt/gnupg-0.4.3.tar.gz  (802k)

and a diff to

  ftp://ftp.guug.de/pub/gcrypt/diffs/gnupg-0.4.3.diff.gz  (170k)

Have fun,


Noteworthy changes in version 0.4.3

    * Fixed the gettext configure bug.

    * Kludge for RSA keys: keyid and length of a RSA key are
      correctly reported, but you get an error if you try to use
      this key (If you do not have the non-US version).

    * Experimental support for keyrings stored in a GDBM database.
      This is *much* faster than a standard keyring.  You will notice
      that the import gets slower with time; the reason is that all
      new keys are used to verify signatures of previous inserted
      keys.  Use "--keyring gnupg-gdbm:<name-of-gdbm-file>".  This is
      not (yet) supported for secret keys.

    * A Russian language file in the distribution (alternatives are in
      the contrib directory of the FTP servers)

    * commandline option processing now works as expected for GNU programs
      with the execption that you can't mix options and normal arguments.

    * Now --list-key lists all matching keys.  This is needed in some
      other places too.
